Veteran death metal act CRYPTOPSY have officially signed with Nuclear Blast Records and are set to release their first full-length album in over a decade later this year
CRYPTOPSY vocalist Matt McGachy states: “We are truly excited to have joined Nuclear Blast‘s roster. Many of the bands we love and a bunch of our friends have released killer albums via Nuclear Blast. Back in 2012, we became an independent band. Now in 2023, we have decided to team up with one of the most influential metal labels. We are eager to be showcased alongside the world’s best metal acts and can’t wait to unveil the next era of CRYPTOPSY as a Nuclear Blast artist.”
Details of the legendary death metal band’s long-awaited eighth album will be revealed in the coming months.
Since the release of the band’s 2012 self-titled album, they have also released two EPs — 2015’s “The Book Of Suffering – Tome I” and 2018’s “The Book Of Suffering – Tome II”.
Vocalist Matt McGachy seems to be in fine, brutal form as usual, as seen in the second of the two clips.
CRYPTOPSY is a Canadian technical death metal band hailing from Montreal, Quebec who have been around since 1988, crushing audiences during live shows and delivering strait-up brutality in the studio via their albums and other musical releases. Albums such as “Blasphemy Made Flesh” (1994), “None So Vile” (1996) and “Once Was Not” are considered essential tech-death listening.
